APPEARANCE

Growing up to three feet in length, badgers can weigh in excess of 25 pounds. These pests have distinct white stripes that start at their noses and go back over their heads, sometimes trailing all the way to their hindquarters. Other distinguishing features include short, stocky legs, gray to reddish-brown fur, and black patches on their otherwise white faces.

DIET

Badgers have a wide-ranging diet that includes various rodents, ground-nesting birds, lizards, and amphibians. They also feed on carrion, insects, and some plants such as corn. Badgers use their powerful legs and long claws to reach prey under the ground.

HABITAT

Commonly found in fields, pastures, and other open grasslands, badgers dig into the ground to build their dens.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

While not known to enter homes, badgers can be found digging in yards in search of food. The pests will construct their burrows near gardens, farm fields, and other grassy areas in order to be near easy prey.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Badgers can cause numerous problems with both their digging and predatory habits. As is the case with other burrowing pests’ dens, badger holes and tunnel systems can damage building foundations, injure livestock, ruin lawns and gardens, and contribute to flooding. These pests also attack chickens, ducks, and turkeys, as well as injure pets.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Fencing can help keep badgers out of yards. However, since the pests are excellent diggers, homeowners must be sure to bury fences at least a foot beneath the surface. Additionally, limiting food sources by maintaining foliage and sealing cracks in building foundations will deter badger presence. Using bright lights at night to scare the pests off can be helpful, as well.
